I stood in the kitchen dumbfounded, as I listen to the long explanation Louis told me. I couldn’t believe Ally was going through this and not once came to me. Not once did she tell me what was wrong or what was troubling her. Not once. Instead she kept it all to herself, enduring all the physical and emotional pain.
When Lou told me about what had happened whilst we were away, I was shocked. He came here; that flipping bastard came here, in my house and r-raped her. Damen rapped Ally. Anger built up inside me. I was angry at the girls for leaving her alone, I was angry at the others for all going to London, but mainly I was angry at myself.
I was her cousin, for God’s sake. I was the closest thing she had to a brother ever since Jake died. If I couldn’t protect her from her past that was catching up to her; then who would? I rubbed my temples and swallowed some incoherent words. All this was happening right under my nose, how I could not notice.
I continued listening to Lou, explaining how he found out and when I heard the name ‘Kelly’ my head shot up. “Kelly, as in Zayn’s girlfriend?” I asked surprised. Lou nodded and continued with his explanation. Kelly was working for Damen. That once sentence stuck with me for a while. In a way she was a spy. Watching Ally and feeding it back to Damen. I needed to do something about this.
“We need to warn Zayn.” I stated. She was no doubt using him to get closer to Ally.
“No. He won’t believe us. He is deeply trapped in Kelly’s faking love.” Lou put down. I frowned at the thought of Zayn’s feelings being played with. Kelly was going to turn him against us if we didn’t do something about it soon. Lou carried on with telling me more about what Kelly done, when I heard Niall’s name.
Tears started forming in my eyes. Kelly hurt Niall. She hurt him, she hurt Ally soon she would hurt Zayn and no doubt everything will go according to whatever Damen was planning. My hand clenched every time Lou mentioned his name.
There was lots of information for me to take in. I knew that Damen had paid a little visit to Ally when we were gone and did some…mischief. Kelly was now in the equation too. From what we knew, she was working for Damen and hurting anyone that got in her way. Zayn was trapped and Liam had just jumped to the assumption that Ally was cheating on him, with Louis.
The next thing Louis said caught me off guard. “Ally is now pregnant.” He finished. I froze at his sentence and just looked at him wide eyes. What?
“D-did, you j-just s-say that Ally w-was… p-p-p.” I tried to ask him, but the words just weren’t forming in my mouth. Lou put his hand on my shoulder.
“Yes, Harry. She got the report this morning and fainted. This is why I have been really protective of her. I knew something was wrong and was the first person to find out. I wanted to tell everyone else but Ally just wouldn’t allow me. She kept worrying about what everyone will think of her and that if Liam found out she would leave her.” Lou clarified, running his hand through his brown hair. You could tell he was really stressed out about his subject. I mean, who wouldn’t be.
“Is it Liams?” I mumbled, looking towards the door, then back at Lou.
“We don’t know. We’re hoping it is, but there is no telling since Damen…” he trailed of taking his gaze off me, to the floor.
I sighed and nodded my head once. I could feel tears threatening to come out. “What are we going to so Lou?” I whispered, barely audible.
Ally needed a mother most at this stage, but lost her when she was small. Her dad and brother died not too long ago, leaving her with no close family apart from me, Gemma and my mum. Ally had a really terrible past, a past that kept coming back to haunt her.
“We’re going to be positive and support her.” Lou stated dragging me out of my thoughts and answering my question. “We are going to help her through this and defeat Damen.” He continued. “We are not going to let any more grief come into her life.” He finished.
I looked towards him and put a brave face on. “Yes. We will get her through this… together.” I nodded, straightening up. Lou smiled at me, but they reached into his back pocket to pull out some papers.
“What’s this?” I asked as I took them from him. My hands were trembling as I clutched them.
“It’s her pregnancy report and… the note.” He replied. I let my eyes roam over the report first. I read every world thoroughly and in full detail. This was a clarification; Ally was actually pregnant. I gulped down my worry and turned to look at the note Louis had been talking about.
It was only small and had been written on with a black ink pen. It read:
I got more than I wanted. That kiss was simply not enough. Just a note to say, next time you’re going home with me.
I read the words over and over again. Damen did actually write this. I thought I’d beaten that man so good, when he kidnapped Ally and took her away. I guess he didn’t learn from his mistakes. Anger rippled through me once again. When I lay my hands on him, he won’t have another second to breathe.
Just then I felt something warm on my shoulder. I looked up to find it was Lou, telling me to calm down. Was it really that obvious that I was pissed right now? Then I thought about Liam, what is he playing at? If he knew half the stuff that was going on he wouldn’t be grumpy pants and blame Ally that she’s cheating.
I huffed out a big breath. In time, thing will get better, but first I needed to take Ally away from here. The note did say ‘next time you’re coming with me’, well for all Damen can think, there isn’t going to be any ‘next time’. Not on my watch.
I looked up to Lou. “Liam needs to sort out his mess and Zayn needs to know, whether he believes it or not. But the main thing...” I said planning everything out, but they trailed off.
“The main thing?” Lou urged me to continue.
“We need to get Ally out of here.” I whispered. Lou nodded; I guess were on the same page.
